27:7 “The daughters of Zelophehad have a valid claim.8 You must indeed9 give them possession of an inheritance among their father’s relatives, and you must transfer10 the inheritance of their father to them.
tn Heb “[the daughters of Zelophehad] speak right” (using the participle דֹּבְרֹת [dovérot] with כֵּן [ken]).
tn The Hebrew text uses the infinitive absolute with the imperfect tense. The imperfect is functioning as the imperfect of instruction, and so the infinitive strengthens the force of the instruction.
tn The verb is the Hiphil perfect with a vav (ו) consecutive, from the root עָבַר (’avar, “to pass over”). Here it functions as the equivalent of the imperfect of instruction: “and you shall cause to pass,” meaning, “transfer.”
